I barely squeaked by for this week’s Baked Sunday Mornings project. I originally planned to make these for dessert on Valentine’s Day, but schedules intervened and Lacy Panty Cakes had to wait.
They were calling to me when I woke up yesterday morning. I convinced Larry to run out for graham crackers and had the whiskey caramel sauce made and the panty cake ingredients all prepped by the time he returned – that’s how quick and easy it is to make these.
The whiskey sauce isn’t too boozy, but it definitely doesn’t taste innocent. The recipe says to use a good whiskey. I’ll clarify and say that you should use a decent whiskey, but don’t use your best stuff. There was no way I was going to sacrifice my Black Maple Hill bourbon for this sauce, but Gentleman Jack worked perfectly. Imagine a caramel sauce, but made with brown sugar. And booze. It’s drinkable good.
The Panty Cakes have some whiskey in them too. They’re really just graham cracker pancakes, with a bit of a lacy pattern that forms on the outside when they cook. We loved the crunch of the graham cracker crumbs in the batter. They’re not too sweet, which makes them a great vehicle for the whiskey sauce.
For the recipe and to see how the other Baked Sunday Morning bakers fared, head over to Baked Sunday Mornings.

They look delicious!
I love how fluffy your pancakes look, and how they’re so nicely uniform to make a beautiful stack! We were a huge fan of these as well!
Oh thank heavens I wasn’t the only one who thought this sauce was drinkable!!! :) It really was beyond good!!
Your pancakes look great. I think I will enjoy the sauce more on ice cream….can’t wait to try that.
We really loved these! I liked your description “not too innocent!” LOL!
Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
very pretty pancakes!
Beautiful job as always Sheri! I loved the sauce too, and glad it wasn’t super boozy.
Nice job! Yours look really nice.
I’m inspired! Beautiful photo!
And they were really good warmed up in the toaster oven days later.
Of course, the rum sauce makes everything wonderful.
